Madison Zombie Lurch 2009

Posted on September 12, 2009 by Flames

Tired of your rights as a member of the living dead being violated? Sick of people putting you down or worse, screaming and trying to smash your head with a cricket bat? We don’t deserve to be treated like this! We will no longer stand for being viewed as lesser citizens. We need to fight for our rights and demand equal treatment.

The Coalition Of the Living Dead (COLD) will gather on Saturday October 24th at 2:00 pm at the state capitol in Madison, Wisconsin, and lurch for our rights as zombies. COLD encourages zombies and zombie supporters to come equipped with signs and slogans to make our point. We will raise our voices and we will not be ignored. We will lurch from the capitol down State Street to the Memorial Union.

Help our support numbers grow! please post this message on your blog, email it to your friends and bring as many people to the lurch as you can. Feel free to bring your family, children and friendly dogs to march with us for our rights.

Thriller Street Performance

In tribute to Michael Jackson, who brought the cause of zombies before the nation in his landmark music video, the COLD Corpse de Ballet will be performing to “Thriller” right before the lurch!

Would YOU like to be part of the performance? You can. We’ll be performing the three-minute simplified version of the choreography as set down by the Thrill the World organization, which is part of a world-wide effort to have zombies everywhere dancing to “Thriller.” (This is not quite the same as the music video dance.) You can learn the dance one of two ways:

1. You can visit the website and watch their instructional videos: They also have dance notes you can print out and follow.
2. You can join us for a Thriller practice session on Sunday, 10/18, from 1pm to 3pm at the Madison Multicultural Dance Center, 1421 S. Park Street (entrance in back on Beld St.) This session will cost $2. (This session is not taught by a professional dance teacher.) Please pre-register by emailing
